RA position in the Prahlad lab

The Prahlad laboratory located in Iowa City at the University of Iowa is looking for an enthusiastic, motivated and dedicated Research Assistant.
My laboratory works on the neuronal control of stress responses, and in particular the heat shock response (for example: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25557666 ).
The position is a full-time position.

The lab uses optogenetics, live imaging, immunofluorescence and FISH, along with standard genetic and molecular biology techniques in C. elegans
to dissect organismal stress signaling. We also use mammalian tissue culture to extend our observations to mammalian systems.

University of Iowa is a stimulating and collaborative environment to work in, and the Department of Biology is a diverse and collegial department.
Iowa city (a UNESCO city of literature) is a very charming and vibrant city to live in. Internationally known for its Writers Workshop, the city supports
numerous outdoor activities, offers a large variety of restaurants and bookshops, and is ~3.5 hours driving distance from Chicago.

If you are interested, please e.mail me directly with your CV, a one page write-up about your interests, and the contact information of three referees.
